. >>> and good morning, thank you so much for joining us. i'm carol costello in washington this morning. we begin with a new measure of the economy. we learned the jobless rate is at its lowest level since president obama fist took office. the new rate, 7.8%, a bigger than expected drop from august. only 114,000 new jobs, though, were added last month. those new jobs numbers seem pretty good for president obama, but his opponents are getting to the microphone first -- to first cry foul. in a statement, mitt romney's camp said, this is not what a real recovery looks like. we created fewer jobs in september than in august and fewer jobs in august than in july. christine romans joins jous now. christine, tell us what to believe because we're hearing so many different things from different camps. >> you can believe that the unemployment rate is 7.8%. and you can believe that on balance 114,000 jobs were created last month. and here's why. the labor department does two different surveys. one of businesses and one of households. let's start at the households survey. when they surveyed

>>> good morning. i'm chris jansing. the breaking news couldn't come at a better time for president obama. the unemployment rate for september falling to 7.8%, the first time the jobless rate has been below 8% since january of '09 when president obama took office. now the big question is, will this change the narrative of the presidential campaign that was against the president after the debate? this morning we're seeing both campaigns end candidates energized, although for very different reasons. president obama was first trying to shake off his lackluster debate performance. mitt romney trying to capitalize on his new momentum. and he's got a new response to that video where he talked about the 47% going beyond what his line has been that he spoke inelegantly. >> well, clearly in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of sechs and question and answer sessions, now and again you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that's completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100% and that's been
